Lage Raho Munnabhai – was boring

Ya. i found it boring. im sorry if i offended you.

Everybody likes this movie. everyone seems to have enjoyed this movie. but somehow i was bored.

it tried to give a message. but couldnt do it properly.
it tried to show a love story. couldnt do it properly.
it tried to do a lot of things. couldnt do anything properly.

It reminds me of those formula movies which has everything in them. a bit of comedy, a bit of love, a bit of sentiment, a bit of family, etc. Lage Raho was kind of like that, not exactly though.

The Message:

This movie tries to give a message. A message about Gandhi-ism. But it failed. It doesnt make sense. Its like a joke. It is entertainment.

You go back in time to those old movies. You will observe that the Police were always good in those movies. They always took the bad guys IN in the climax.
After a decade or so, the police were also the villains, but the Chief Minister was always the good guy. He punished all the wrong doers including the police at the end.
These were movies which dealt with real things but were not real. It was all entertainment.
Lage Raho Munnbhai is something like that.
It is as if its dealing some social problems and showing a way to go about them. But it does it very loosely, so loose that it doesnt make sense. Yes, it might be entertaining or funny but doesnt make sense.

The Love Story:

Okay now the love story between munna and the radio jockey who shouts ‘hellloooooo mumbaiiiiiii…’ on the radio every morning.
dude, i dont see a chemistry. it all sucked.
the heroine is kind of characterless. i dont know, i just cant see a character in her. i dont why she falls in love with munna, i dont why she does whatever she does. her face is like as if its made of glass, always wearing that mild smile.
damn, all these are qualities of a pukka commercial film.

They made Circuit cry a lot:

This seriously sucked. It was very cheap on the part of the director or whoever made him cry a lot in this movie. the first time he cries is when munna slaps him, it was fine. it was emotional.
Then later in some other scenes in which circuit was not a major part of, they inserted his shots of crying. Only to enhance the emotional effect of those scenes. they made him cry unnecessarily. Unbelievable people! They talk of quality and they do something as cheap as this in the film.

Boring and Lame:

God this movie was boring. I just cannot watch it another time. May be for 5 or 10 mins on tv, but never the whole movie. Cos it was boring.

It was lame. The Boman Irani(Lucky Singh in the movie) sequences were plain lame, stupid and boring. Munna and ms.heroine ask people on radio to send lucky singh ‘get well soon’ messages.
You ask why? because lucky singh is a bad guy who does things like land-grabbing and thus is considered as diseased.
Ok but what would happen if people send him ‘get well soon’ messages? Munna hopes that this way, one day, lucky singh’s conscience will make him realise his mistakes.
Why does munna think so? Because he is influenced by Gandhi-ism.
Ok this could be entertaining, but it is definitely bull’s shit. it is LAME. i mean, what the fuk?

And the equation between Lucky Singh and his daughter(played by Diya Mirza). THATS LAAAAMEE! The whole diya mirza plot is Lame. why lame? sorry i dont have the energy to elucidate that shit. all those things like diya running away from the house on the day of her marriage, then cursing her father on the radio, lucky singh feeling bad crying, diya going back….all these things have the silliest and lamest reasons possible.

Totally,
i would prefer a david dhawan movie to this one. this movie is not even a sincere tribute to the first part.

Positives:

1. Some sequences made people think. made people consider some aspects of gandhi-ism.
example: A regularly spits on B’s door while coming down the stairs. B starts cleaning that spit in front of A everyday. A sees that everyday and, one fine day, stops spitting.
There are two or three things like this. They are, at the least, thought provoking.

2. The director dared. The story has a radical angle, munna’s mental problem. It takes courage and belief for the director to deal with such an angle, having so many expectations on him.
He dealt with it, the movie is a big hit. the director succeeded.

But the movie definitely failed. Its a khichdi.

Hrithik Roshan – the real Superstar

Not shahrukh, not aamir. No not amitabh. Im sorry, its not abhishek.

The real superstar of hindi cinema, right now, is Hrithik Roshan.

(I’m no fan of him or any other ‘hero’ in the hindi film industry. )

There is a great possibility that the majority will disagree with me. But thats because you’re not able to see it. Cmon, see it. He is the One. He has the physique, he has the looks, he has the sensibility, he has the charm, he has the talent. He can look vulnerable, he can look lethal.

He is the only one who can do it all. And that makes him a Superstar. A real superstar.

I was really surprised by his performances. I never imagines he could act so well.

Just recollect him in Koi Mil Gaya. Now think about him in Mission Kashmir/Fiza. Now go to Kabhi khushi kabhi gham. Time for Lakshya. And ofcourse there is Kaho naa pyar hai where played both the roles very well. Now jump to Krrish.

He played it. And he played it very well.

I admire his performace in the first half of Lakshya. I really wondered. Bcos it needs a lot of sincerity to do what he did. He put in serious efforts in playing that role, and with the talent he has, he just clicked.

All this only proves that hes a very talented and sincere actor. One just has to tap his potential. I kind of feel that he’s trying to be like Aamir Khan in terms of work and sincerity towards a performance.

Now combine his acting talent with his looks, his physique, his dancing ability, his ability to do stunts. He is the package! Can anybody match this package?

And that makes him the Real Superstar of Hindi Cinema.

P.S: Ive been reading that Abhishek Bachchan is the next superstar. Its very funny. I’d like to state that abhishek bachchan is where he is now only because hrithik took a big break in terms of releases. Now that he is back, hes gonna take over everything. All the other so-called superstars will only have to watch.

Note: Hrithik Roshan’s next release is Dhoom 2. Slated for release in the last week of november, if im not wrong.
